World’s Largest Fan Run Transformers Convention (TFcon) Promoter Colin Douglas Takes Over Windsor ComiCon For 2017
New general manager Colin Douglas will take on leadership the 3rd Annual Windsor ComiCon. Douglas is a long time collector of comic books and action figures who is known in the fan community as the promoter behind TFcon (tfcon.ca) the world’s largest fan run Transformers convention held annually in Mississauga, Ontario for the last 16 years.
Douglas’ passion for all things geek also resulted in the creation of Ontario Collector Con (ontariocollectorscon.com) and the annual 80’s Toy Expo which continues to produces every year. Douglas is dedicated to give fans another option where they can find rare and import toys, comics and collectibles.
“I’m extremely excited to be able to provide what will be a fantastic event for the fans in Windsor-Essex County and the surrounding areas,” said Douglas.
Windsor ComiCon will feature autograph and photo op sessions with the celebrity guests, Q&A panels with the guests, programming for all the key genres, cosplay costume contests for adults and for kids, and tons of shopping from a wide variety of vendors of comics, action figures, t-shirts and much more.
About Windsor ComiCon’s Change in Leadership
Colin Douglas acquired the rights to Windsor ComiCon through past president Steve Menzie.
“The success of Windsor ComiCon will certainly prosper under Colin’s leadership,” said Menzie. “I encourage the communities of Windsor-Essex to continue to support this great pop culture event.”
Menzie, who acquired ownership of the Sport Card & Memorabilia Expo (sportcardexpo.com) in 2016 also took over the license for Spartan Race Canada (spartanrace.ca) where he is now the general manager.
Local Windsorite Jeremy Renaud worked with Menzie in the past to promote and organize Windsor ComiCon. Renaud will now work with Menzie at both the Sport Card & Memorabilia Expo and Spartan Race Canada. In addition, Renaud will assist Douglas with Windsor ComiCon 2017.
